Sneak peek- - - Celebrating Nature's Beauty in Stitches is opening at the Jenkin's Arboretum Friday evening - - - here's a great collage created by the staff at the Arboretum for their Facebook page featuring a glimpse of some of the amazing quilts in the show - - - it's going to be a great show!
Yes, Mother Nature threw the set up crew a curve ball yesterday by blanketing the grounds of the arboretum with ice - - but the show must go on!
The room was stripped bare and ready to receive the quilts - sure it was nasty outside, but beautiful all the same.
The fantastic staff at the Arboretum, Steve and Carla, climbed up and down the ladders hanging all of the beautiful quilts in the show - - - the piece of a show you as a visitor never have the chance to appreciate - - - setting up a quilt show is hard work!!! Many thanks to the two of them for all of their dedication to creating a beautiful show for us to enjoy.
The show opens this Friday and will run through February 27, 2011. The Arboretum is open daily 9 AM - 4 PM, and entrance to the arboretum is free. Many of the quilts are available for purchase.
